Howell's of NC
I’m trying to track down a family.
On the 1880 Census of Pasquotank, NC, I believe is my 3rd great grandmother and her husband, James & Martha (Lowry) Howell. I can’t locate this family in 1900. However, I know they had another daughter around 1886 named Cora Howell (Marriage certificate in Pasquotank to William Jordan Thornton date 1955, lists her parents as James Howell and Martha Laury Howell. Cora was 69 when she married again). Cora married Calvin Dickerson of Chowan County around 1905. But, what’s baffling me is I can’t locate the Howell’s in Chowan, Pasquotank or Camden in 1900-1930. The only one I’ve been able to track is Cora and her family from 1910-1930. They lived in Chowan in 1910, Pasquotank in 1920 and moved to DC by 1930. I can’t locate Cora in 1900 either. I figure she would still be living at home at that time.
Calvin Dickerson is living in Chowan County in 1900 with his parents.
